I think Jeremy is onto something!
Enquiring minds want to know!

Big Big CONGRATULATIONS to you Ken.
Seems like every mag I open lately has your truck in it.
Very cool!

Yeah, he probably tore the truck completely down to fix some minute detail! J/K Ken! tells us what is really going on.

Well I will say the bed was off and ground down to metal. Yes it did involve a minute detail that most people wouldn't notice. It was driving me crazy though.... Fortunately Roger at Stoked Out was just as determined to fix as I was.....

You guys will just have to wait for "the rest of the story".... :p
